Barr + Wray are delighted to have completed work at the new Brechin Community Campus. Designed by JM Architects, the campus will provide the Angus town with integrated education for young and old, community groups as well as sport and leisure facilities such as a swimming pool, climbing wall, fitness suite and gymnasiums. Facilities within the campus are fully accessible for people and pupils with additional support needs.
Working alongside Robertson Construction, B+W were responsible for the design, supply, install and commissioning of the 25m x 11m swimming pool and associated Filtration Water Treatment Plant. The pool was constructed using Myrtha technology, which provides many benefits over a traditional concrete pool. This follows the success of Myrtha pools which we have recently installed at other schools within the region. As well as the pool, we were also contracted for the design, supply, install and commissioning of the sauna and steam room as part of the leisure facilities.
The spectacular new Brechin Community Campus has been purpose built to meet the needs of the community. It was officially opened at a special ceremony by Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills John Swinney. Mr Swinney said: “This new campus will provide a fantastic environment with truly modern facilities which the whole community will enjoy for generations to come and I am proud the Scottish Government has supported its construction with a £15.6 million investment”.
